Globe and Mail ending print distribution in Atlantic Provinces

The print edition of the Globe and Mail will soon no longer be distributed in the Atlantic provinces, according to a story in J-source. Print distribution will end in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick on Nov. 30.The Globe had stopped regional print distribution in 2013 in Newfoundland and Labrador. 

Globe publisher and CEO Phillip Crawley said that the change will save the Globe about $1 million annually. He attributed the change to the increasing use of digital access which is what is being offered to Globe subscribers as their main alternative to print home delivery. 
“Clearly we make a judgment on how many subscribers we’ve got in a particular region, what cost that is, and we’ll carry on doing that,” [said Crawley].

Tabitha Southey and Leah McLaren were dragging down the readership in Maritimes...so they were let go, in an attempt to raise circ by end of Nov and bring back the Globe to the Atlantic Provinces...
